Abstract

Benign familial nocturnal alternating hemiplegia of childhood refers to recurrent attacks of hemiplegia arising from sleep, described in young children without neurologic or mental impairment. It is probably migraine related. The authors report two unrelated patients with nocturnal attacks starting at 22 and 31 months, followed by daytime episodes in one. The authors confirm the benign course of this disorder. It is distinct from the classic malignant form of alternating hemiplegia of childhood.
